XL650 Spent Primer Upgrade

(for use with a Dillon Strong Mount)


Anyone who reloads on a Dillon XL 650 press knows the issues with spent primers missing the stock spent primer cup and ending up all over the bench and floor. This upgrade creates a closed spent primer system so there is no way for the spent primers to exit the system and end up all over the floor or bench. With this upgrade you also will never have to worry about the spent primer cup over flowing and jamming the system because you can see when it needs to be emptied. The new spent primer cup also will hold 3 times as much (by volume) over the stock cup.

To achieve the full benefits of this upgrade it does require a Dillon Strong Mount and you will also have to drill 3 small holes in the side of your mount for the spent primer cup to clip to. (If you do not have a strong mount or do not want to drill the holes in your mount please see my non-strong mount version.)

This system uses a Funnel turned from billet aluminum and mounts using an ABS Plastic Bracket, as the case is deprimed the spent primer will fall through the platform directly into the funnel and then be passed through the tube down to the new spent primer cup mounted to your strong mount.
Upgrade Press Compatibility

This upgrade will only fit Dillon XL650's with the metal stock cup mounting bracket and bolt spacing seen above. Older presses have different spent primer cups (with plastic cup mounts) then the newer presses.
